The Universe is full of mystery and unknown. Most of the scientists are trying to discover and to understand the Univers and its mysteries but it is not as easy as it may sound.
In the list bellow we will present you the most mysterious objects discovered in the Universe.
- Fermis Bubbles
In November 2010, it was announced that two gamma-ray and X-ray emiting bubbles were detected around Earth’s galaxy, the Milky Way. The bubbles, named Fermi Bubbles, extend about 25 thousand light-years distant above and bellow the galactic center.
The plane of our galaxy glows brightly in gamma rays, which result when high-energy particles called cosmic rays interact with gas and dust. The Fermi Bubbles emit higher-energy gamma rays than the rest if the galaxy’s disk.
- Saturn’s hexagon
Saturn’s hexagon is a persisting hexagonal cloud pattern around the north pole of the planet Saturn, located at about 78 degrees North. The sides of the hexagon are about 14.500 km long, which is about 2000 km longer than the diameter of Earth. The hexagon may be a bot greater than 29.000 km wide, may be 300 km high and may be a jet stream made of atmospheric gases moving at 320 km/h. It rotates with a period of 10h 39m 24s, the same period Saturn’s radio emissions form its interior. The hexagon does not shift in longitude like other clouds in the visible atmosphere.
- Red Rectangle Nebula
The Red Rectangle Nebula, so called because of its red color and unique rectangular shape, is a protoplanetary nebula in the Monocernos constellation. Also known as HD 44179, the nebula was discovered in 1973 during a rocket flight associated with the AFCRL Infrared Sky Survey called Hi Star. The binary system at the center of nebula was first discovered by Robert Grant Aitken in 1915.
- Uranus Moon Miranda
Miranda, also designated Uranus V, is the smallest and innermost of Uranus’s five round satellites. It was discovered by Gerard Kuiper on 16 February 1948 at McDonald Observatory in Texas and named after Miranda from William Shakespeare play The Tempest.
- Magnetar SGR 1806-20
SGR 1806-20 is a magnetar, a type of netron star with a very powerfull magnetic field, that was discovered in 1979 and identified as a soft gamma repeater. SGR 1806-20 is located about 14.5 kiloparsecs from Earth on the far side of the Milky Way in the constellation Sagetarius.
